DRYING INTO THE WEEKEND
A front hanging across the region renews the shower and thunderstorm chance for Friday. The morning starts out mainly dry, but there will be numerous areas of dense fog. Into the afternoon hours, showers and a few thunderstorms develop once again. Some locally heavy downpours are possible, so some minor flooding in spots could occur again in places that have seen the brunt of the rainfall the last couple of days. Highs are in the upper 70s to lower 80s. High pressure working in from the northeast squashes the shower chance, and pushes the front to the southwest. There will still be a few showers while this takes place. Highs are cool, with readings in the lower to middle 70s. On Sunday, expect a mixture of sunshine and clouds. Temperatures remain below seasonable averages and hover near 80 degrees.
Dry weather continues through the first half of the week. A blocked flow keeps our next system to the west of the area. This means plenty of sunshine for Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday clouds build a little as the next system edges closer, but it’s still a day filled with lots of sunshine. Highs begin in the upper 70s to lower 80s Monday and rise into the lower to middle 80s by Wednesday.
Thursday a cold front looks to bring our next chance for showers and thunderstorms. Before the front enters the region, temperatures should have no problem reaching the middle to upper 80s. Expect plenty of humidity too, creating an uncomfortable feel.
Have a great weekend!
